VARSITY
How often are you on the news/in the newspaper/on media?

That two day old kid in England has already beaten my lifetime of media coverage, and he's not even trying.

So are you in the news/media often? Consider anything from being interviewed to being quoted to being arrested to that viral picture on collegehumor of you eating a hot dog in an embarrassing manner. Does the world know your name or face?

I'm generally a behind the scenes guy. I work on a lot of issues that get on the news, but very seldom am in the news myself, and then only to talk about those issues. Maybe an interview or two a year, if that.

My biggest media piece was some quarterback humor that I posted on here a few years back that got passed around the web to some degree in a mild viral spread (more like a cold than a virus).

My arrest was big news when it occurred.

I use to get a lot of media attention when i was just a homeless kid (go figure). San Diego's "North County Times" did a column on homeless shelters and i was the main feature, had a picture of me in there too (sympathy card i guess).

Father Joe (local homeless/social services advocate) would pimp me out quite a bit when i was a teen. Had me going on local radio shows every Holiday season to tell my stories in order to get more people to donate to his foundations. He even had me do a T.V commercial, which was rather embarrassing.

I've been published in scientific journals several times. Nobody reads them, so I'd say never.

I voted for the quite often option. Facebook counts as media, right? I'm almost a big deal on there. Or at least I'd like to be.

I have jokes read on a national radio show almost daily if that counts. I've had my tweets used in articles on yahoo sports, yahoo, usa today and some others.
And Jay Mohr talked about me for about 10 seconds on his podcast with Bull Burr last month.
